Niinimaa On His Way Out?

According to Newsday, Coach Stirling Kicked veteran defenseman Janne Niinimaa off the ice during practice. This could reinforce the rumors concerning the defenseman. Read the article here…,0,2389508.story?coll=ny-sports-headlines

From a die hard Islanders’ fan perspective, Stirling needs to go. He has no business coaching at this level. He got their AHL team to the finals, BIG DEAL. He switches the lines every five minutes and he put Oleg Kvasha between Yashin and Satan. The problem with the Isles during the last decade has been their lack of consistency. They got great picks and within a year, they were shipped away. If Milbury had some patience, the Isles would still have Luongo, Bertuzzi, Palffy and you know what, they’d be a force to be reckoned with. Patience is the key and unfortunately Our GM and Coach have none, and the patience of their fans is on thin ice

    Thanks for the kind words, I never thought I’d meet a Rangers fan that respects an Islanders fan! It’s easy to say, you’ve got class. I have nothing against that guy, he’s entitled to his opinions but to go out of his way to bash a fellow fan is something I’ll never understand. He totally misread what I wrote and he knows it since he’s virtually disappeared since he posted his lengthy tirade. Milbury isn’t my favorite guy in the world but I can actually ssay he did a good job this offseason and Stirling just keeps messing up.

    i said it once and I’ll say it again, The frangers are playing like the isles were expected to play and vice versa. Enjoy it while it lasts!
